If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

Sunday Morning Breakfast at the Golf Course - A Tradition!
Up late, as the time change of two hours ahead really throws you off! Especially since the sun doesn't come up until 7:45... The guys made coffee (yipee, as I had none the day before!) and then we walked around the marina to meet Chris and Lorry. Headed to Isla Navidad's restaurant at the golf course for breakfast. It's still a nice place! Enjoyed the views of the golf course and lagoon. Then up to the tower for our other tradition - photos in the tower! I had taken two photos with me so we knew where to pose. The photos show "Guavi" in the marina, the Grand Bay Hotel, the lagoon, our traditional place to pose, the golf course, looking across the lagoon entrance to Barra and the gang: Jim, Heather, Alan, Chris, Lorry and Ariel!
We cruised Mexico's West Coast for 3 years on our prior boat, "Thistle" a Columbia 50. Went back to California in 2000 and bought the "new boat" in 2004. We then spent a year and a half cruising in Mexico. We just did the "Baja Bash" ~ sailed up the outside of Baja and returned to SoCal! We are We are now back to work for awhile...
A thought we say to ourselves everyday:
"You'll only regret the things you didn't do".
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." ~ Mark Twain
"Life is either a daring adventure or Nothing." ~ Helen Keller
"A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for." ~ John A. Shedd
"Make it happen." ~ Alan Burg of the sailing vessel Toshal
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the places and moments that take our breath away." ~ Anonymous
“Happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have.” ~ Rabbi Hyman Schachtel
"Make 'someday' today." ~ From inside a Dove candy wrapper
